For a few years I worked at a wine bar in Manhattan. Effectively, I sold wine. I described the wine, I got excited about the wine, and I was pretty good (not great) at […]
Wine has always been difficult for me and I have never understood why. It shouldn’t be a problem for me, since it’s made of grapes, which I’m not allergic to (thank goodness). So I figured that I just can’t handle the alcohol. And that would have made sense to me (having a sensitive body and […]
